Sales Tax Requirements

Due to recent changes in the sales tax laws we may be required to start collecting sales tax on purchases made by our customers.  This is based on state requirements and can vary by state.  Many of the products that we sell are then resold by the Dealer.  These products can be exempted from sales tax on the purchase based on resale exemption.

If you are registered in your state with a sales tax resale number you can submit a signed exemption certificate with your sales tax number that will allow you to claim an exemption on the products that you purchase.  It is important for us to obtain this certificate information from you in order for your account to remain exempt on your purchases.

You can download a copy of a uniform sales exemption certificate using this link.  Uniform Sales Exemption Certificate .  If your state is not listed on the form you would be required to submit the certificate designated by your state.  Please refer to your local state tax departments for further information.

You can return the signed form to us either by mail, fax or email.
